"Judith with the head of Holofernes" is a stunning etching by the renowned Italian artist, Giuseppe Zocchi. First published by Joseph Wagner in Venice between 1760 and 1770, this masterpiece remains a highlight of Zocchi's oeuvre and a significant contribution to the canon of Baroque art. The etching depicts the biblical heroine Judith, standing triumphantly with the decapitated head of the Assyrian general Holofernes in her hand. Her confident and powerful posture is captured brilliantly, and the rich details in the scene are beautifully rendered through Zocchi's skilled hand. The etching's use of light and shadow creates a dramatic chiaroscuro effect, heightening the intensity of the scene and adding depth to the characters. Giuseppe Zocchi, the author of this etching, was a highly influential Italian artist in the 18th century. He was known for his remarkable ability to capture the beauty and essence of the Tuscan landscape, often through highly detailed drawings and etchings. His work is characterized by his ability to create elaborate and realistic scenes. Joseph Wagner, the publisher of this etching, was a respected art dealer and publisher in Venice during the 18th century. He was known for his keen eye for art and his ability to recognize the artistic talents of the time. This exquisite etching "Judith with the head of Holofernes" by Giuseppe Zocchi have a watermark, adding to its already impressive pedigree.
